Unicep Invests in New High Speed Single Use Applicator Line


Sandpoint, Idaho, March 20, 2014 --- Unicep, a leader in specialized liquid and gel contract manufacturing and packaging, announced today that it has acquired a high speed single use applicator line to support the ongoing need for point-of-use delivery systems. This latest addition to Unicep’s state of the art manufacturing facility will complement their existing portfolio of unit dose blow-fill-seal dispensers.

“Today’s announcement is another demonstration of Unicep’s commitment to providing our customers with new and innovative options to satisfy their unit dose packaging needs,” said Paul Knight, VP of Engineering at Unicep.  “With this addition, we are able to offer our customers world-class consumer product capability producing hundreds of millions in annual SwabDose™ units.”

There is a broad range of applications and products that can benefit from SwabDose™ technology. Within the SwabDose™ unit casing, an applicator, such as a swab, is saturated with liquid, gel, or cream products for one time use topical application. Consumers can apply products in a single, sanitary premeasured step.  The point-of-use applicator is ideal for products such as skin and nail care, whitening gels, gum soothing products, fluoride treatments, animal health products, and OTC topical treatments.
